1. Mitochondrial dynamics in aging and stress
Under the Implementing arrangements between DST SERB and European Research Council (ERC), Dr. Thondamal recently visited Pasteur Institute, Paris, to establish a C. elegans facility to conduct research work on role of mitochondrial morphology regulators in C. elegans aging and stress. In a close association with Mitochondrial Biology research group (headed by Dr. Timothy Wai) at Pasteur Institute, Dr. Thondamal is working on genes which regulate mitochondrial fusion and fission process and how alterations in mitochondrial dynamics affects health and lifespan of an organism.
